Description

Nellie McClung's fourth book, In Times Like These, written in 1915, survives as a classic formulation of a feminist position. With hard-hitting rhetoric it demands women's rights as a logical extension of traditional views of female moral superiority and maternal responsibility.

About the authors

Nellie McClung was an activist: prominent campaigner in the successful drives for female suffrage in Manitoba and Alberta, a nationally known feminist and social reformer, the only woman at the Canadian War Conference of 1918, and MLA in Alberta, the first woman member of the CBC's Board of Governors, and in 1938 a Canadian delegate to the League of Nations.
